– WWE confirmed on RAW tonight that Rey Mysterio will get his WWE Title shot against either CM Punk or John Cena on next Monday’s post-SummerSlam show from his hometown of San Diego, California. This was the big Rey Mysterio-SummerSlam angle we talked about several weeks ago.
– No word yet if the match will still take place after Rey was attacked by The Miz before their match this week in an injury angle. Rey reportedly tweaked his knee at a WWE live event this past weekend.
– Next Monday’s WWE RAW will go up against some major competition – the return of Monday Night Football on ESPN. Usually RAW isn’t hurt by pre-season games but with the NFL lockout and everything else going on this year, interest may be up.
